Just a quick note today to say that our sauropod will be featured on Blue Peter today! That’s right, the Niger Sauropod will finally get the fame it deserves. Blue Peter presenter and action woman Helen Skelton will be talking to our very own fossil preparator extraordinaire Mark Graham and NHM palaeontologist / dinosaur expert Paul Barret. She’ll also help remove the plaster jacket from one of the femurs, the two largest bones in the dinosaur’s skeleton. Don’t miss it!

Welcome back! Although we cater for all areas of the museum’s collection here at the Conservation Centre, today I’m going to be talking about dinosaurs again with another update on the Niger Sauropod Project.
Hello, thanks for joining us. To kick things off I’d like to start by introducing an exciting fossil preparation project that has been underway since I first became involved with the Conservation Centre, more than a year and a half ago - the Niger Sauropod Project.
Hello and welcome to the new blog for the Conservation Centre here at the Natural History Museum in London.
I plan to use this section to give visitors to the website an insight into what's going on in the lab, covering both of the key areas that we're engaged in- conservation and preparation.
So stay tuned to find out about some of the fascinating work we're involved in down here in the basement of the palaeontology department.....
